Title: Contributions to the Theory of Local Extrema
Authors: A. Ben-Tal
Abstract: The paper is concerned with the problem of characterizing a local minimum of a constrained mathematical programming problem. Some new and some old results are obtained from a basic principle which allow a unified treatment of both necessary and sufficient conditions. The theory developed is free of constraint qualification assumptions. Most of the second order results are given in primal and dual formulations.
